New Girl Season Two’s 15 Best Moments of Physical Comedy

New Girl really came into its own this season. There are many reasons for this: more character (and character backstory) time, deepened relationships, payoff in the form of kissing.

So with the second season winding down tomorrow night, a look back seemed to be in order. You'll see Nick punch balloons and at least one roommate, Schmidt's failed head-butt and lap-dance, Winston freaking out, and more. But what will be No. 1?
